Integrity and Bulletproof

Writer Douglas Adams wrote “To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity”. Although first responders would never say they are heroes, for those of us who experience their bravery and selflessness, we know they are filled with integrity. It’s little surprise that soldiers, firefighters, police officers, EMTs, emergency room nurses, and other first responders suffer immeasurably as a result of what they see and experience. Our hosts Kenneth and Siri interview Captain Dan Willis with his book of BULLETPROOF SPIRIT: The First Responder's Essential Resource for Protecting and Healing Mind and Heart, the first book to offer assistance and support from a nondenominational spiritual perspective to first responders and their family and friends with a chapter on PTSD . “Trends without Ends” reporter, Jack Pawlakos talks about current trends affecting and influencing integrity. He repeats the clever quote “If you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you don’t have integrity, nothing else matters.” Finally Kenneth and Siri read Cynthia Brian’s chapter, The Gift of Integrity, from the book, Be the Star You Are! Millennials to Boomers Celebrating Gifts of Positive Voices in a Changing Digital World. Walk your talk and respect first responders. Your life depends on them.
